Is Walt Disney that innocent? Why are there no parents in his comic books? How come the natives and savages always give up their riches to the duck invaders? What are Huey, Dewey, and Louie doing in Vietnam? The Chilean people began to ask these and other questions in revolutionary Chile in 1970. This seminal deconstruction was, of course, banned and burned during the fascist period in Chile—and is still banned here in America (Disney will sue into oblivion anyone who publishes it). A product of the political struggle, the book is a profound and imaginative critique of the sacred cow of children's culture: the Disney myth. Isn't it time you discovered why the only way you can read it here is via bootleg.
